HammerHead said:(and a word about WC3/4 fighters - they had such nice ship designes for WC1/2, so why suddenly change to these boxy, ugly, flying pigs?)
Death said:The "boxy" part, at least, was due to the performance restraints imposed by systems at the time, since the ships were actively rendered by the game engine, instead of WC1/2's pre-rendered sprites. Straight lines were easier to generate than curved ones, so there weren't quite as many curves as in earlier ship designs.
As for "ugly pigs", well, everyone's entitled to their opinion.
Even if it's dead wrong.
WC Armada: Love: Phantom. Ferret on STEROIDS. More of a "medium-light" but it's the best interceptor Confed ever built. Why the HELL were these not in WC3? Hate: None, really. The heavies were fun...flying gun platforms.
